Chemistry Minor

An optional minor in chemistry is available to students majoring in any other department. Chemistry connects many of the other fields of science. A minor in chemistry is ideal for pre-health program majors as they prepare for graduate school and careers in pharmacy, forensic science and more. Depending on your career goals, it’s also an ideal minor to pair with a major in business, law, or sociology.
